KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 10:19 ” Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you”.
Our Lord Jesus received reports from His disciples about their exploits in evangelism. He remarked by saying, I beheld Satan fall as lightning from heaven. He then added the statement of our key scripture.
Whatever the Lord said to His disciples then, He says the same to you and I today. The Lord said, “behold I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the powers of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you”. This statement is an, assurance of perfect security over the enemy.
He first said ” …behold I give you power…”. The Lord gives us this ability by speaking forth words. *Every spiritual virtue is given by words and it is accepted by faith. Anyone who hears this statement and accepts it personally actually has it.
Fellow child of God, Jesus says, he has given you power. You receive it by responding positively to him. You do this by believing what He said and then thanking Him verbally. You may say, thank you Lord for giving me power to trample upon serpents and scorpions.
The word translated power from the Greek language is the word “exousia”. This word in the Greek language is properly translated as authority. Authority is the right or liberty to use power. . We have therefore been given the right or authority over these devils
Behold I give you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions….” You have the divine mandate to tread or trample under foot every power of the devil. Satan and his demons come against us in all sorts of challenges. Don’t feel victimized any time the enemy comes knocking at your door. (That is, bring a challenge to you)Prepare your mind with this understanding that, no matter the opposition Satan brings, you have been given the right to rule over that devil. Tell yourself I would surely overcome this condition.
I have been given the right to trample under my foot all satanic spirits in Jesus name, and they cannot in any way hurt me. I indeed tread on all of them now in Jesus name.
2 Samuel 22:30 “For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall”.
Romans 16:20 “And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen”.
Prayer Point: I pray O Lord that my eyes of understanding be enlightened in Jesus name.
